awesome day in summerville!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the best day i have ever had collecting fossils. As you can see from the pictures there is a big black tooth this is from a gomphothere a animal that pre dates the mastadon and wooly mammouth. The megs were found the same day also the broke one messured in at 5 1/2 inches and the whole meg was found in the same basket as the gomphothere tooth that i was sifting and messured in at 3 1/2 inches. I was told that the gomphothere tooth is a rare find. This animal had four tusk and lived in swampy areas throughout south america and north america. also check out the small stuff in the pics this was a awesome day.

I hear there are some big megs in the Edisto River for the divers to find. Have you ever found any by diving? That gomphothere tooth is a cool find, huh? I have found several in the creek in Summerville. I sold one for $25, 000. I kept two. Want to sell yours? Content Quality : 9 of 10
